Another Front This Week

October 14, 2012; 7:00 PM

Severe weather wasn't as bad as I feared it would be today (that happens a lot to me this time of year). The front causing a few spotty thunderstorms in the Midwest, Tennessee Valley and trailing back into Texas will get to the East Coast tomorrow and may cause some more coverage of storms tomorrow.

Another front will push through later this week, but I don't think there will be much severe weather with it. A decent chilly shot will arrive behind it.

In the tropics, we're still watching Paul and Rafael. Rafael looks to be a concern only for Bermuda while Paul will head toward Baja California and some of its moisture may end up getting pulled into Texas.

  • Heat Builds, Gets Beaten Back, Stormy Transition

    Heat building in Texas will spread east but the much-hyped cool front will push it away next week. Look for some rough weather along the front, especially near the East Coast.

  • Heat To Return Before Another Unusual Cool Shot

    July 10, 2014; 1:45 AM ET

    Heat will be building across the South over the next several days, but we already see signs of another shot of unusual cool air down the road. The heat won't go away quietly. Speaking of quiet, the tropics are currently.

  • Arthur to Rake NC, East Pacific Still Active

    July 2, 2014; 8:15 PM ET

    It looks as though Arthur is going to be close enough to North Carolina to do some damage. Hopefully it doesn't get any closer than forecast. The rest of the Atlantic is quiet, the East Pacific isn't.

  • Critter Near Florida, Heat Eases Late Week

    June 30, 2014; 7:15 PM ET

    The low east of Florida will keep it active near the East Coast this week while the heat wave continues to the west. A front will move in and ease the heat for many by Independence Day.

  • Heat Is On, SE Coast Tropical Troubles

    June 29, 2014; 7:15 PM ET

    It looks like a hot week for most of the South, although we see a cool front moving in later in the week. Also, there's this critter east of Florida to watch.
